In light of St. Patricks Day, I made some green tea cupcakes... not quite Irish, but green nonetheless. :) It was made with matcha, a powdered green tea.

Hey - Any suggestions on where to find the Matcha? Also, please do tell what kind of frosting you would suggest.

Just checking to see - did you make these? Were they good? What frosting did you use? Thanks

These would be great for Easter too and that is what I am going to do,.......... the recipe looks wonderful, thanks for saharing, sally
